Great Falls, VA (PressExposure) December 26, 2007 -- Virginia-based JamboKids Company, Inc. has published a new parentâs guide to promoting positive character development in global kids.
JamboKids â A new childrenâs toy and storybook company, which launched at the end of October 2007 â is providing scientifically based products to parents and educators to meet the needs of an increasingly culturally diverse population.
Now that 45 percent of U.S. children under age 5 are part of a racial minority, children need additional skills for building character strengths and coping with the increased globalization of our society.
The new parentâs guide is currently on sale for $11.99 at the JamboKids website, along with a variety of other toys and childrenâs books that uplift and strengthen the attitudes and behavior of children. Based on research in the areas of positive psychology and character education, the parentâs guide is presented in a handy worksheet format that contains tips, discussion prompts, and activities that enhance childrenâs natural character strength development.
Dr. Richard E. Rawson, Psy.D., a psychologist and the author of the new parentâs guide, explains, â[it] focuses on what is right about people and specifically about the strengths of character that help them live good lives and be successful in a global world.â
